MSNBC LIBELS THE POPE

Catholic League president Bill Donohue accuses MSNBC of libeling Pope Benedict XVI:

Go to the home page of MSNBC and click on "World News." From there click on "Americas." Next click on the article, "Losing Their Religion? Catholicism in Turmoil." Scroll down and in the "Click for Related Content" section there is an article entitled, "Pope Describes Touching Boys: I Went Too Far." Clicking on this piece takes the reader to an article about a homosexual German priest who had sex with males in the 1980s. It says absolutely nothing about the pope. Yet MSNBC paints Pope Benedict XVI as a child molester in the tease to the article.

A retraction, and a sincere apology, are in order. They should also investigate how this happened and who is responsible.

Ricky Vines MSNBC Libels Pope. Really disgusting assault. As noted above, there is a great desire to undermine the authority of the bishops and Pope in the USin an attempt to lend credibility to other Catholics who disregard the episcopal guidance and formtheir own interpretation of the faith. This mistake coming from the propaganda arm of the administrationis just so convenient. The Church must explore all legal options to enforce a punitive measure that willprevent such recklessness in the future. This is another way to make Pelosi, Kennedy, Stupak, Keehan andCHA to look like reasonable if not faithful to the spirit of Catholicism. I think it would be naivefor the Church to swallow that apology hook, line and sinker. I move for a court case to be filedand damages levied. This is the Vicar of our Incarnate God Who face is being dragged through the mud.I think many will contribute to the legal fees that will be incurred when filing such a case.
